Homemade Spice Bag- Syn Free


If you are Irish then you know what a Spice Bag is and how obsessed the entire country is with them. What started off in very few Chineses around Dublin has now taken over and Chineses in each county coming up with their own variation. Unfortunately their not very good while you are following a healthy lifestyle or a plan such as Slimming World.

So how to make a delicious spice bag that will not leave you craving the real thing.

Ingredients
(serves 2)
2 Chicken Breasts
1 slice of Brennans B Good Wholemeal Bread(or any other HEXB Bread)
1 egg, beaten
2 Carrots, peeled and diced
1 Onion, peeled and diced
1 Pepper, any colour, deseeded and diced
4 Large Potatos, peeled and wedged
4 tsps of chilli flakes- divide between chips, chicken and veg
2 tsps of chilli powder- divide between chips, chicken and veg
Good sprinkle of salt 

Method
 Preheat oven at 180 degrees(fan oven)
  1. Par boil potatoes for 5-10 minutes, depending on thickness of chip.
  2. Drain and dry the chips, spray evenly with Frylight and sprinkle on  chilli flakes and powder and mix.
  3. Blend B Good bread into breadcrumbs with chilli flakes and chilli powder. I use a food processor or a blender
  4. Dice up Chicken Breasts into strips
  5. Dip strips into the beaten egg and then dip the strips covered in beaten egg into bread crumbs.
  6. Once covered in breadcrumbs pop strips into a tin foiled (sprayed with frylight) oven dish.
  7. Place chicken strips and chips into preheated oven for 30 minutes, shake chips halfway but do not touch chicken.
  8. While they are in the oven prepare vegetables.
  9. In a wok on low heat add in onions, peppers and carrots and spray with frylight. Sweat the veg for a good 15 minutes i.e do not colour the veg but soften them.
  10. Add in the rest of the chilli flakes and powder.
  11. Once chicken and chips are done, mix together with the veg and sprinkle on on salt.
  12. Serve with some homemade syn free/ low syn curry sauce
